Coast Victoria Harbourside Hotel & Marina
I say at this hotel probably 5 or 6 times a year….great location, clean comfortable with great staff that are always friendly and helpful. Love the harbor view rooms..and they are even dog friendly. The Blue Crab restaurant is a great place to start you day. Excellent all round

Hard to ask for much more really. The hotel is in a superb location right on the harbor, they have a parking garage, great on site restaurant and fabulous views. There is a water taxi stop right in back of the hotel so getting around the area is a breeze.
We were upgraded to a suite on the 10th floor with a privet balcony that overlooked the harbor which made the visit all the more memorable. The staff throughout the property was top notch and went out of their way to insure a great stay.
We couldn’t have been happier with our choice of hotels. Very highly recommended.
If you are looking for comfort, a fantastic view, great staff, and ideal location, well, my friends, you have found it!!!! I was upgraded to a wonderful corner room on the 7th floor overlooking the water. Up from a lower room facing the town. There was a very tiny deck that was home to one chair overlooking the harbor, but that was enough for me to spend a great deal of time watching all the activities on the water, smelling and feeling that great sea air!!! Memorizing was the view, especially when the Blackball (Coho) ferry went and came back. Countless float planes and I was able to catch the last days of the water taxis making their rounds.
The staff were exceptional and bent over backwards to make sure my stay was a memorable one. I should have jotted their names down, to give them the props they deserve. The room was very neat, clean, tidy and comfortable. Speaking of comfortable, the bed was the most comfortable I have had the opportunity to sleep on in quite some time. Slept like a rock with the windows open. I also thought there were some small touches they thought of that completed the experience. For example, the over-sized bath towels!!!!! I am a fairly big guy and normal hotel-sized towels just don’t cut it! I thought this was a great touch. There was absolutely nothing wrong with this hotel. I come back, I will be for sure staying with these fine folks!!!! Thank you!!
We spent 2 nights at the Coast hotel and found the location to be perfect for a weekend of rest and relaxation. Our room was basic but nice. The bathroom could have used a bit of updating but overall it was fine. Staff was friendly and efficient but the best part of the weekend was our location on the waterfront. It was a beautiful 10 minute walk downtown along the waterfront walkway. It is also about a 20 minute walk to the ocean/ Ogden Point. We enjoyed the quiet of the neighborhood rather than being closer downtown with traffic noise, yet you were still very close to all the Victoria highlights. There are many good places to eat from high end restaurants to the cafe’s at Fisherman’s wharf about 5 minutes away. We were looking for a peaceful getaway and were not disappointed.
Very clean hotel in beautiful position :)
This is a great hotel in a prime position. It is only 2 minutes walk from Fishermans Wharf which is delightful for lunch (closed now for dinner) and approximately 20 minute walk or 5 minute water taxi ride downtown. On one day we took the water taxi downtown ($5 per person plus tip) and then walked home as the water taxis had stopped running (they stop at 7:00pm for autumn & winter). It was lovely. If you have a mobility issue then I’m sure one of the hundreds of taxis that peruse the streets could also get you back pretty cheaply. I chose this hotel as I wanted peace near the water & downtown and that is exactly what we got.
Nearly all the staff were very helpful, friendly & professional, the only exception was (strangely enough) the concierge. In the 2 days we stayed he did not smile at us once (and I like to smile at people), when I would catch his eye and smile at him he would just look at me somewhat disdainfully. Very odd behaviour.
The room was very clean, smelt nice and whilst we were not expecting a water view, because of the positioning of the room, we did get one which was lovely.
I like the fact that they are trying to be as environmentally responsible as possible by reducing unnecessary wastage or cleaning of bedding/ towels etc.
The king size bed was pure delight – I actually forgot my husband was in there with me!!
We will come back here & highly recommend.
